  1. Stats I’m almost afraid to mention as we approach Game Five with a tied series…

    Detroit is unbeaten in Game Fives this playoff season. In both previous rounds they came home with a tied series won the next two games to finish things off.

    The Wings are unbeaten in the playoffs in afternoon games. Games Two and Five against Calgary and Games Two and Five against San Jose were all wins.

  2. Chris Pronger actually blames the canadian media for his suspension. Did he see the replay?

  3. He also claims he didn’t watch Game Four but that there were awful calls. Way to contradict yourself, dumbass. I expect the refs to be watching him closely today.

  4. Guess I was wrong about the refs watching Pronger closely.

    Different game than we’ve seen thus far this series, closer-played. I’m nervous as long as the Wings don’t have the lead.

  5. Woohoo!!!

    You could see that one coming a mile away. What a move by Cleary to delay and let Lilja catch up.

  6. That’s what DETROIT needed — a role player — to finally be rewarded. There are others too, and hopefully, they’ll hit pay-dirt as well. DANNY MARKOV is due! Go WINGS! ;)

    Johan Franzen is another guy that’s due. I’m very happy at the physical play by the WINGS. Keep goin to the net. Eventually, the FROGGY Frenchman Giguere is going to fold.

  8. OK, I don’t think anyone KNOWS more than the WINGS how badly they need to get the rubber past GIGUERE on these PP opportunities. LETS SEE IT!

    ANAHEIM’s blocked shots are King …….. not enough action in front of GIGUERE. GO WINGS!

  10. Wasted power play chances. That’s what killed the Wings in Game Four. We’ll see what happens.

    THIRD PERIOD HEROICS ;)

    Which WING will step up to a higher level and score to take ANAHEIM out of this game? Does anyone out there see ANHAEIM sitting back and letting the WINGS take it to them?

  12. I agree, I don’t see much fight in the Ducks at all. Only when they are shorthanded.

    The wings should win this game hands down. Giguere is playing well though.

    Wow! This IS STANLEY CUP hockey at its best ….. If there is still anyone out there who doesn’t agree that the Stanley Cup is the hardest championship to win, I don’t know what wil. Both teams playing with SPIRIT & DETERMINATION. Its too close to call in my opinion. Both GOALIES are commendable, but so is the fore-checking and back-checking of both teams, particularly the WINGS.

  14. WOW! What a HIT by DANNY MARKOV! That’s almost worth a GOAL right there! That will help to DE-STABILIZE THE DUCKS ……. A couple more like that won’t hurt …. ;)

  15. Did anyone see the CROSS CHECK on FILPULA just to the right of GIGUERE, just before the shot that hit the POST? That was a non-call and must be addressed!

  16. Two-Minute Drill -3rd Period:

    Holmstrom called for INTERFERENCE ……….. Does anyone have a problem with this?

  17. I said to catmandu before everything went crazy, “Remember the uncalled too many men penalty.”

    No one can feel any worse right now than the WINGS in the dressing room. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m pretty disgusted with the calls and non-calls ……. Like I said in a previous post …. its past being rediculous.

  19. I’m glad Hull has confidence in the Wings, I’m really not feeling well right now.

    Who’s Catmandu?

    Send Osgood out to club Giggy

  22. One f*cking bad break.

    Bad Break is right. What it comes down to now, is what happens in the WING’s dressing room. What happened on the ice is done ………. That can’t be changed. No dwelling on it. The WINGs have to find a way to WIN the next two.

  23. i cant believe that they lost . who was playing on defense, bad giveaway

    It was LILJA , but no one should pile on him.

  24. Yea if it was one person who would give it away it would be Lilja but he has really stepped it up in the playoffs. We were running what three lines in ot? Where was Bertuzzi? OBviously babcock doesnt have faith in bertuzzi and kopecky unless they were injured. Game 6 will be a good game I hope, Wings can’t be blown out. Wings did come back against the Avs in ’02 I believe when they were down 3-2 heading to Colorado.

  25. It was a serious bone headed mistake. Who carries the puck from behind the net out in front of it?

    Besides the last game Selanne has been almost non-existant. Looks like he’s wakin up. I’m gonna credit Giggy for keeping them in the game

    because it really should have been about 4-1 DET.
